As a practiced estate planning firm serving Western New York, our attorneys help educate individuals and families and correct misconceptions when needed. A commonly held belief among many people concerning elder law is that this area of law is a fairly simple legal category addressing a limited number of narrow issues. 

In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Candidly, we stress from long experience that, “Elder law in New York is a complex practice area that demands attention to detail.”

And that is precisely what our experienced legal team gives it, backed by on-point knowledge that elder law matters – both challenges and opportunities – routinely vary considerably from case to case.

Diverse and valued clients — sometimes individuals and sometimes couples, and often with additionally collective input from loved ones – come to our firm for candid guidance and sound representation regarding a plethora of financial, health and social issues. Sometimes those matters stand on their own. At other times, they tie together in complex and nuanced way.

Here are just a few representative areas we focus upon when helping clients with elder law concerns:

  • Straightforward estate planning centered on asset preservation, lawful tax avoidance, inheritances, trust creation and more
  • Guardianship and conservatorship issues
  • In-home care processes and procedures
  • Protection against exploitation and fraud
  • Nursing home considerations
  • End-of-life health concerns
